Japan, the land of rising sun, is also known for its innovative ideas and concepts in almost every walk of life. If you are only on a look out for outlandish gadgets and robots from Japan then change you perception and watch out for these strangely customized vehicles that were featured on a recent episode of Sokon Tokoro. Two of the vehicles in the video is owned by a Buddhist priest. One is a BMW E66 that has its trunk studded with 30,000 Swarovski crystals in form of Buddhist sutras. The second one is a Toyota Celsior UCF20 with gullwings, scissor doors and a split hood that cost 10 million yen ($110,000). And of that much money, you can find 24 monitors, including several mounted in the headrests behind the passengers’ heads. The 25 million yen ($280,000) Batman van is also worth a look.

Some of the rides featured in the video are – Host George Tokoro’s Subaru R1 which is masked as a Ferrari, a 10 million yen ($110,000) 1994 Cadillac limo lowrider with plush pink interior and 11-color paint job and a 40 million yen ($450,000) “Tank” dragster powered by a 25,000-horsepower US military jet engine that spews a powerful, camera-melting flame.
